Annabelle Lukin [+-]
Macquarie University
Annabelle Lukin is Senior Lecturer in Linguistics in the Centre for Language in Social Life, Macquarie University. She is interested in understanding more fully what it means to analyse text and linguistically construed social context in the terms established and developed in the work of linguists such as Halliday and Hasan. She works in particular in the areas of media and political discourse, and in literature, including literature and translation, and she has published in all these areas. She is co-editor (with Geoff Williams) of Language Development: Functional Perspectives on Species and Individuals (Continuum). She curates the ‘SFL Linguists’ site on VIMEO, and contributes to Wikipedia on topics in linguistics, especially on people and ideas from the systemic functional linguistics tradition.

Description

Having begun her academic life in the study of verbal art, Hasan was never to work professionally as a linguist in this specialist area of the discipline. The study of literature had almost the status of hobby, while, in her institutional position, she diversified into studies of children's stories, mother-child talk across distinct class settings, the language of globalization, and discourse in educational settings. She studied and wrote on discourse from two languages, her mother tongue Urdu, and her second language, English, in which she lived most of her academic career. She worked on every linguistic scale: on sound patterns, lexis and grammar, on semantic units, and contextual phenomena.
